So we have a ginger dog, a black dog and an orange dog? That's wonderful.

Ontopic: What you could do is find some videos and watch a few or ask some friends if they know how to do this and ignore most of these lovely people, they have quite a great humor and like to be total buttheads when they get a new person.

Using the general lock Tools, info_target, Tools/lock texture or anything like this will still be decompiled by bsp source.
It's in the hammer map tutorials, if I remember right. Albeit people can still disable that with entspy.

Even with those method, bsp source can still decompile it.

@ant's method
you probably would have to rename it each time you update server or do something cron jobs related
Hey,

I have created a logic_auto entity and named it "crasher" and have made it remove "worldspawn" onmapspawn.

Now how would i remove logic_auto with source stripper?

It says:
To filter an entity from the map, each entity block contains properties that you wish to match against. For example, the following block will remove any entity that is a hostage:

Code: Select all

filter:
{
"classname" "hostage_entity"
}
Would i replace "hostage_entity" with crasher_entity or something?

Thanks for your help

I found this map locker on a different community I play on.
I didn't read the topic so Idk is someone posted these methods...
3 Possible ways.

1)

Go onto any point entity such as 'light_environment' then turn off smart edit and press add.
Next make a Key with the name of 'no_decomp' and with a value of 1.

This is very easy to overcome but a clueless moron would never be able to get into the map!

2)

The second level is to create a texture called 'locked' using vtfedit and any random picture.
Place this texture into your HL2DM materials folder in a folder called tools. You may need to create the tools folder. Make a 1x1x1 brush with this texture.

This level is far harder to remove and for some reason stops the decompile process.

3)

This final layer of protection is almost impossible to remove without a lot of knowledge on how bsp files are written.

It is very basic and easy to add and it greatly reduces the chances of your map being decompiled.
Download this file: http://www.bagthorpe.org/bob/cofrdrbob/ ... tector.zip and open it in hammer then copy and paste it into your map anywhere. Do not edit it in any way except its position. Make sure that it is not touching anything as well.

You use info_target for this, not random entity.

It can still be decompiled with BSP Source.

In that case, replace with logic_auto. However, you may want to filter by "name" and not classname so you can still use logic_auto's in ur map. If your not using it anyway then don't worry about it.

use this:
filter:
{

"classname" "logic_auto"
"targetname" "crasher"
}
this will remove any logic_auto that has name crasher.
